According to a I.GWH Btory, this is.what happened : March of Time cameramen were making i: documentary film of Vienna, and prepared to film n monthly cocktail party which follows each chanKnijf of the international ctiard. They not up lifrhts and cnrrerss, awlslud by Russians, after they were invited tn (ho party, in a reception room of the Knmmaiidatnra by Colonel - Fe'lych, si'lintt Soviet commander In Vienna, and host to the parly. Two representatives of Time. Inc., sard they recmoNliprl pMinlasion to film t h o ceremonies and partv jiccordinir to fixed procedure. Th?'* snirt they applied to the American officer In charifn of liaison wrth the Soviets and received the Rutifian in- vltniinn to attend the party. While the cameramen wore otit«lde film- ins yjnrade-H whivh form the military part of (he program, their lights and etiuipment were removed -upon order of BriR. Gen. William T. Fill*, U. S. commander In VI- enna, who reputedly remarked that.' "Th« whole Vienna inter-Allied command and all its functions arc secret." This action followed appointment by Fill" of his public information officer as Assistant provost marshal on crounds there wast rio. need.'for conttict with iiews organization!). It. nlso followed by n few diiyr, tho. ad ion of the U.S. Army authorities hi Lcrhnrii. Italy, which ts under Ihe -.U. S. forces in Austria command, In issu- ; :.n order to impound a film which bml ·n made for an American network tcle- -vision .show, : The people of this country wouldn't ·have been surprised if the Russian officer in the inter-Allied command had decreed :hat the cameras and eotiipmcnt of the American company should be ousted from he ceremonies or held that all proceedings were secret. It comes as somethinp of i shock, however, to realize the orders ·tme, instead, from an American. Army ifficer. · This thins? .bears close scrutiny by inmebody much htgher in rank than Brig-, "eneral William T. F.tts, and we hone an 'ivestigation is made. It may only be a Irop in the bucket, as the saying goes, but ig oaks from little.acorns grow, and we late to see this sort of thing occur.

Scheele. fcurgeon general, Public Health Service, Federal Security Agen- ry). Washington--As a natlnn, we Americans are enjoying the he«t hearth In our history. Statistics are cnlrt Ihlngs--but tlify are revealing. Our rlrnlh rate lust year was nine and a half pffy-ons for every thousand of our population, hi I90H--only 50 years ago--it wan a little over 17 In in-cry thousand. Twenty-odd years ago-in 1825--11 w»s 11.7. Perhaps even more revealing are the figures un life expectancy. C h i l d r e n horn today have a l i f e expectancy of 68 years. In 1300 l i f e expectancy was only 4D. We nave, in other words, experienced n t(aln nf nearly 20 years! Mow has this come about? The principal overridliiK raqron Is the literally tremendous a d v a n c e that has been made in medicine and scientific research In the first half of the 20th century. At no time in man's Ions slruBKle asalnst disease have comparable gains been recorded. Because of our br.tler understanding nf medical n.'oblems. we havp crcatly improved the health care of our children and .youth. Diseases such as d i p h t h e r i a , typhoid fever, whooping cough, and diarrhea that used to k i l l tens of thousands of babies and young children every year have fallen under the nitack of medical science and publlc-healfh practice. Expectant mothers pet much better care during pregnancy snd d u r i n g (he birth of t h e i r babies than did their mothers and crandmolhcrs. Nearly nine in every 10 American babies are born in hospitals, where they have a better chance to survive those crucial first days of life. All the modern equipment and special care is at hand to help m«ny a premature baby pull through who couldn't have made it in earlier years. + * * Clean water, safe milk, Improved sanitation. Immunization, and better knowledge- of i n f a n t feeding have been in the forefront in reducing death rates and increasing life expectancy. The average American today knows much about the "wonder drugs," penicillin, sulfa, cortisone--all miracles of modern research and medical treatment, but he takes for granted the equally miraculous preventive wurk of his state and local health departments. The public-health physicians, dentisls. nurses, engineers, sanitarians, and other members of the health team in our states and communities are fie heroes--often unsung--who pla.v such a biq part in making our homes, communities, and our very lives safer and more healthy. They make- It possible for us to drink more milk per capita than any other people in the world--be-- causi they keep It'safe. They guard our water supplies and m a k e It possible for us to eat in restaurants, on t r a i n s and planes «nd other public places without civ- Ing a thought for their safety. They stand guard against a host of communicable diseases t h a t once sffllcted hundreds of thousands, but today rarely occur. Every communitly's small investment in public-health work pays enormous dividends. Even the "chills 1 ' of malaria--which as recently ns 1940 cost our Southern states J5no.0fl0.00fi in sickness, lost time, and low production--have disappeared under the organized public-health Attack on mosquitoes. Bccnuse wei have conquered no many communicable diseases, we now have more people living tn the ages when they are more likely to suffer from such cronic diseases as cancer, arthritis, heaii ailments and we need a great deal more roseafch.W.glve us answers to'these grave problems. Our great American philanthropic foundations, endowed by individuals or families, and our voluntary health agencies, supported by generous public subscriplion. have leveled large- scale research attacks on manv of tbe chief killers and cripplers of today. The American C;»n- crr Society, for example, is spending over 53,000.000 a year on research. The National Foundation for Infantile Paralysis is spending com- paraTjle amounts to conquer poliomvelitis. * * * The rid/ens of our country, throush Congress, are determined that their government, too. shall help speed up the conquest of disease. In 1030. Congress created the National Institute of Health in the Public Health Service, and in 1937, a National Cancer Institute. Since 1943. Congress has created five more national institutes--in mental health, denial research heart disease, arthritis and the metabolic diseases, and in the neurological diseases and blindness. In these institutes, scientists in many fields are studying the major health problems of today. The Public Health Service also has groups of research workers at A t l a n t a , Cincinnati, in Montana. Alaska and other places. Through the trants-in-aid of our institutes, the Public Health Service gives f i n a n c i a l assistance to thousands of research workers in universities and other institutions throughout the country. Tn rone with the shortage of research scientists, large-scale research-training programs are under way in all of the nation's major teaching and research institutions. M;my voune scientists receive fellowships from the Public Health Service, the Atomic Energy Commission. and the National Science Foundation.

No vegetables, candy, or fish for the next ten days. Eat nothing but people!" Dr. Morris Fishbcin rescued these two ferris .from the examination paper of a tecn-aHe "Student in Chicago: "Natural immunity is catching- a disease without the aid of a physician" and "A psychiatrist is a doctor with mental disorders." What if you found yourself tru Algiers Sn Christmas day? That's where one tourist wound up last year, and told his guide. "This Is one day when I don't want to be dracced to places you show every other American. Tonight I want to see the real Africa!" The guide said, "I will take- you-to the wildest, most exotic cafe this side of the Sahara." The two men repaired to a dark, forhiddinc house on the edge of town. A tree with some ratty trimmings had been propped up in one corner, and several node- script natives seemed lo be celebrating In their fashion. What caught the tourist's eye, however, wai an Enclish colonel, impeccably attired, swagger stick and all, who be!ieve-it-or-not, was only six inches tall! As the tourist stared in wonderment, the bartender threw a red silk cord over trie edge of the bar, the colonel shinnied up, perched on the top, and demanded a double whiskey and soda. The guide was delighted. "You're in rare luck," he told the tourist. "You're about to meet Colonel Pringle, one of the rarest sights in all Africa!" Then he turned to the six-inch figure, and boomed, "Be a good fellow, Colonel Pringle, and give my tourist friend here the details of Christmas Day in '43--the day you told that witch doctor to go jump in the lake!" * Questions And Answers Q--Do the tides ever move with the sun?

"Are you tired, honey?" "No, not very." Adele's childish voice replied. "May I look?" "Yes, Indeed, you may." Louise led the little girl around to the front of the big easel that xvas now supporting a finished portrait of the little girl. Adele stared at it solemnly for a few minutes. Then she looked up at Louise, a smile breaking through the seriousness of her face. "It's very nice," she said, "and I think it looks like me, only I'm not always as pretty as that." "Goodness, y o u ' r e modest!" ·Louise laughed gaily. "You must 'be sure to come to the Exhibit !to see how your picture looks : alonit side of the other portraits." j "Yes, Mr«. Weston. I'll epme," .Adrle promised. "Daddy said he'd itake me." 1 Louise helped the child into her ihat and coat and went with htr ito the door. A car with a unl- J formed chauffeur was standing at .the curb. Adcle ran down the ! steps and disappeared Into the depths of the car. Louise weot back into her studio. It was a large room that extended across the back ot a house on Lefferts Place. Harry had j m n d c quite a fuss after she told I him about renting a itudlo. "I don't know what you want to do that for." he had blurted out nn«rily. "It seems to me there's room enough In your own house for any painting you may wnnt to do. It's lust *n CXCUH for grlllng out of your houM- work." Louise hnd smiled «l him quite unperturbed. She refused to argue with him about the matter. She had eome home lata to August after · summer In Prov* Inretown. With a beautiful and becoming Ian the had acquire* i bn4ttm.triw.t-*.. te poise, i self-asn-rance that bat- led her husband. She was only sorry that the couldn't tell Harry about that wonderful summer. She had registered at an art school with a great deal of trepidation, sure that she was too old to go jack to lessons, fearful that the other students would hold her up to ridicule for presuming at her age to compete with rising young artists. The class had met In the mornings in an old barn up on a hill. To the surprise of Louise, enter- Ing timidly on the first d»y, there were several gray-headed men busily setting up their easels and one or two women who looked to be much older than she was. She began to feel more assurance. When the model took her place on the platform and Louise acgan squeezing out colors on her palette, her heart was to filled with » joyous excitement that her hand trembled as she reached for a brush. Far from laughing at her, the other stndente looked at her work respectfully and even asked her advice upon occasion. · · t 'THE summer had agreed with ·*· the children, too. she thought, as she took oft her paint-smeared smock and tidied up the studio. Ted hart loved his summer *t camp and It had done him » world of good. And Eleanor had gotten a job and had gone off to business every day with her father, feeling very important «nd pleased to be earning Id * week. The housekeeper Louise had engaged was capable, efficient and kindly. Louise had asked her to stay on after she relumed (mm tht Cape Yea. It had ill worked out very well lor everybody except Hurry.

And her certainly could not accuse her of neglecting the children. They were having a very nappy family life, she considered. She would, of course, drop her painting at once if she Bought it was necessary for the well-being of her children. She put the kettle on the gas ring and got out the tea things. The children liked to have tea at .he studio occasionally. Today she had persuaded Harry to stop in on his way home from work.. It would be fun to hear what they thought of the portrait of little Adele Miller. She arranged on a plate the cakes she had bought on her way to the studio. Then while waiting for the kettle to boil she picked up a book. The Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam that Ted was always quoting. One stanza pleased her so much: "A nook of Yeraei underneath the A loaf of bread. · jur of -cine, and ttiou Beside me, almtlng In the wilder- Ah. wilderness were paradise enow." Louise let the book lie in her lap. THAT'S it, she nodded her head ·*· thoughtfully. Mr. Khayyam knows. There mur,t be a book and a dear companion. The bread and wine alone are not enough. And if Harry only knew it, Louise was sure she would not have been so good a companion to him if she Had not had the desire to paint deep in her heart, even when she wasn't using it The kettle was boiling furiously. She got up to turn down the gas, and then Harry opened the door and looked In. As It he expected to find somebody here, Louise thought. Probably that wai why he hated the studio. Harry had heard such wild stories about artists. Ashamed of her unkind thoughts, Louise trolled at her husband radiantly. 'Do come tn, Harry," she laid, going toward him, her hands ont- Itrttched. She stood on tiptoe to Maa him. and Ml arms draw bar UOM lor a moment. (Ta la CaMMed) , · I Boyle's Column Bj HAL BOYLE Hometown, U. S. A.-l^l-Trellis, sleep."

Dorothy Dix Extracts from three letters, culled from among hundreds received on the same subject, show the intensity of feeling on this tlmeworn problem. I t 0 come home habitually from "I am 16, a senior in high school, : dates at 12:30 or 1 is too late. For an; I think that 12 or 1_:30 on · exceptional outings, it could be Saturday nights, and half an hour permitted, but not every night, or In the first two letters quoted, local cuslom permits far later dating- privileges than I would consider wise.

When I go out on a date I have to be in by II o'clock, or 1 lose my dating privileges for two mo" 'hs. My friends tease me because .neir parents let them stay out until 12:30. even every weekend night. The parents who do let their daughters stay out so late do so, not because they believe in it, but because they are loo easily coerced by their children, or by the argument that "everyone else does it."
